Hi, I had a big crash yesterday. Seems like the upper "jesusbolt" on my Raptor broke. So the heli smacked into the thin ice on the river. The heli went through the ice, so half of the canopy was under water. The controlbox for the gyro, the receiver and the governor are destroyed. The servoes seems all ok. But I wonder, how about the servos and water? I went straight home and put the servoes in front of a heating fan, to let them dry out. Seems like the battery got disconnectet as the heli hit the ice, so there were no power on the servoes. So what would you guys do? Would you still use the servos if they seems to be ok?

If it was fresh water yes. I raced nitro boats and dryed out wet equipment many times over.

I would open up the servos just to make sure that there is no water inside, and dry them up if necessary, and put them back to work. But that is just me.

I assumed they were opened up. Definitely open them up to dry out.
